These are some of my favorite guys, THE BOOZEFIGHTERS!  These guys along with Patty VanTassel collect food and donations for Matthew 25.  Every holiday is filled with their love and kindness for this community.  They always want to give back!  So they load up their cars and trucks filled with food and bring it to Matthew 25, just in time for Thanksgiving!  Thank you guys!  I am honored to call you all "friends."
